I contacted the United Methodist Committee on Relief and they were happy to get the pictures and first hand information and will be sending suplies for 300 people. Sometimes we can make a difference with a call or other contact.

I also send $200 and Pastor Swan bought rice, oil and flour and delivered it to the neediest of the families. Not much but it was a something to be done with the cooperation of those in Pakistan.

View from Pastor Swan in Pakistan

Filed under: Uncategorized — storytel @ 4:14 pm

Hello Brother in Christ,

Greetings in the precious name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!!

Romans 8:35 who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?

1. You will be blessed and shocked that I have found this verse from a Church. Which Church is totally demolished by Muslims militants?

2. They have killed 07 members of one family including children. No one is there to help them even Government of Pakistan.

3. I am attaching pictures and also request you please help these needy people in their cry in food/shelter/Clothes and medicines. Their children are without food from last 03 days.

4. There is very worst condition. Please continue to pray for them.

I hope to hear from you soon.

God bless you and yours ministry.

Faithful in Christ,

Pastor Rauf Swan,

Violence in Pakistan

Filed under: Uncategorized — storytel @ 10:25 pm

I talked with Pastor Rauf today and he told me of a village that I traveled through where Saturday Muslims killed 7 Christians. Some of their bodies were mutilated. I read on the news just now that they burned 50 homes and that only 6 were killed. I need to write to say how I feel about this.

These are some of the same people that I talked to in house churches or prayer meetings. Their Muslim neighbors were some of the people who had children in the village schools that I worked with. I can’t imagine living in a situation where this can happen.

To be a child in the corner hearing parents talk about these atrocities must be so frightening. To be a parent and not know what will happen to your child on the street. I am here and cannot do anything about what is going on there…or can I.

I can keep the need for peace in peoples minds here. I can witness to the need of appreciating our religious freedoms, along with other peoples religious freedoms. I can support the school so that some of these kids will have an education that may bring them above this turmoil. I can pray for them.

I feel so helpless. Imagine what they feel.
